iKindle Paperwhite – designed by Apple.

I love my Kindle Paperwhite. It is a very good device. Amazon has clearly put in a great deal of thought behind it. I like the beautiful screen saver, photos which come on when you turn it off. I liked the fact that they paid attention to such a tiny detail. It was very Applesque.. I made me think, ‘What if Apple had decided to create the Kindle Paperwhite?’   Back in 2007 when Kindle was launched it looked like this -     Steve Jobs would never have launched a product designed like this.. Had he and his doubles-partner Jony Ive, decided to launch an ebook reader,...

Why Does Google Rent Goats? – 7 Mind-Blowing Facts About Google

1. The main reason why Google’s home page is so simple is due to the fact that Larry Page and Sergey Brin didn’t know HTML and just wanted a quick interface.

Should you hire someone to blog for you?

I am against hiring someone to blog for you. If you are an expert in your field, you should be the one who blogs. You can always hire some one to blog for you, he can always do bit of research before writing a blog but unless he is a true expert in that field his articles won’t be original, they will always seem like a rehash of other articles.
